on litigation. (in English and Chinese)
TORONTO, June 19 /CNW/ - Paper is not dead but most information is
digital, much of it exclusively so. That poses problems when it comes to
investigating white-collar crimes such as fraud or identity theft. Data is
volatile. It can be altered or deleted and does not leave a paper trail.
However, like a comet burning through the night sky, data leave a digital
Enter Kevin Lo, Senior Managing Consultant, Electronic Discovery
Practice, with LECG Canada, a strategic advisory and forensic accounting firm.
He is often called when a client suspects data theft or manipulation is taking

In addition to his Electronic Discovery Practice with LECG Canada, Lo
serves as the First Vice President for the Ontario Chapter of High Technology
Crime Investigation Association. On June 20, he will be the luncheon speaker
at the Edmonton Chapter of the Association of Record Managers and
Administrators (ARMA), at the Crowne Plaza/Chateau Lacombe.
Members of ARMA, a not-for-profit professional association, manage paper
and electronic records and information. Lo's talk on the impact of data flow
on legal records is most timely because corporations and government agencies
maintain massive databases with personal, financial and confidential
information, as well as intellectual property. Often, this information can be
distributed to mobile executives who store it on Blackberry devices, personal
digital assistants or notebook computers. Data can even be emailed to, or
accessed from, home computers. In addition, organization must now comply with
Sarbanes-Oxley regulations and privacy protection acts such as Canada's
Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
Lo is currently available for interviews about IT forensics and what
companies should do to protect their data so that they won't have to call in
an IT forensics expert.
